The Best 54 Hashtags in the Event Industry in 2020

What are the Most Popular Hashtags for Events?

The event industry moved entirely online, and in the past four months, venues have been either empty or turned into hospitals.

EventProfs are working from home and learn to work in a completely different environment. Events are either postponed, cancelled or moved online to virtual. Therefore Social Media, Webinars, Digital Marketing and Technology saw an exponential increase in the meeting industry.

In this article, we want to provide you with a list of the best event hashtags to make your event successful.

We divided the event hashtags into Social Media categories that we consider the most important in the event industry. Let us know if there are any #s missing from this article that you find useful and share with our blog readers and EventProfs your favourite ones.

Hashtags for Postponed, Cancelled and Virtual Events

If you had to cancel, postpone or pivot to virtual your event, we all know how fundamental it is to keep your audience engaged. These #s are ideal for keeping up engagement and reach a wider audience.

 

The post-COVID-19 scenario will likely be hybrid. Therefore, Social Media will play an essential part in your events, and the right event hashtags can be ideal tools to reach your target audience.

 

Let’s not forget #s are an essential way to connect to your attendees. They allow you to reach the content related to their queries.

Promote your Event with Hashtags

 

Event Hashtags play a significant role in the promotion too. They allow you to have more visibility and improve SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).

By visibility, it means in particular more Brand Awareness with potential attendees and to gather relevant people in a discussion created by you.

How to create your Event Hashtag

To promote your event, we would recommend you also to create your own. E.g. #(your company name/at/event name) .

  1. It allows you to measure your brand share of voice during your event promotion.
  2. You can run competitions and giveaways to keep up engagement.
  3. You can use #s around the topic of interest to attract stand visitors.
  4. Live tweets/ live chat/ live on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, to inform your audience about your live availability during your event promotion.

Platforms that Support Hashtags

Twitter – We list Twitter’s name first as the creator of #s and the most prominent user, since 2006.

Facebook – FB started using #s in 2013

Instagram – Here, you can use #s to complement the images you share.

Tumblr – Posts here have a feature called “tag,” which works quite like a twitter #.

Pinterest – Use hashtags to mark and search content.

LinkedIn – Linkedin supported hashtags but then abandoned them in 2012. Good news when in 2016 hashtags came back again with improved features for searching. This social media is ideal for networking with fellow #EventProfs

 

In addition to the above Social media, which are the most commonly used for events, hashtags are also used on Vine and Flickr, and in YouTube comments.

IN CONCLUSION

Event organisers, event planners, event managers and marketers can use hashtags for engagement across event promotions, customer service, satisfaction surveys and broadcast media. Some examples may be opinion polls, deal-based marketing to recommend next steps for their brand, social media monitoring and social media listening (identifying what people thinks about your product, service, brand, or company on the Internet.)
